The different approach to the unveiling suggests how Google and Motorola wants this phone to be seen by the public. It is not a model for the power user who has to have the fastest processor or the phone that scored the highest on the AnTuTu benchmark site. We all know someone like that. If that is what you're after, we should see some nice top-shelf specs coming from the new Motorola DROID Ultra models that are expected to be introduced as soon as Tuesday by Verizon.
The appeal of the Motorola Moto X is to the person who wants to put together a phone (from the outside) that he can call his own with a combination of colors to choose from for the back cover and trim of the device. There could be more than 20 colors to choose from, which could allow for a fairly large number of different color combinations. Remember, the customized version of the phone will be available online only.
For many of you, August 1st can't come soon enough. Until then, feel free to stare at the picture below.

I'd still prefer a 5-inch screen. It's still the year 2013 after all.

not everyone have hands that big to operate 5 inch screen with one hand...i do (i personally own GS4) but google thinks 4.7" with soft keys is right size of screen and I aprove. If bezel is really small it will be really easy to use it with 1 hand for anyone

it's a 4.5" inch screen not 4.7", still not bad , about 4.2" inch of usable screen, the semi transparent navigation keys make it look bigger and when it come to games and videos , you can also use the (FullScreen) App found in google play that will hide the soft keys and notification bar and have full screen usability . 4.5" is pretty good.just barely bigger than iphone 5 its the perfect overall phone size. the most important question that haven't been answered yet is : battery and storage size?

that's very fine with me, but the latest reports say it is a 4.5". and in the Vietnamese video that's on the web in you pause it at 1:24 and compare it to the iphone 5 next to it , it do look more like a 4.5".

Yeah, the big hand argument is ridiculous. I get if you don't like a big screen for whatever reason, but it's not because it's too big to handle. My wife has a S4 and she has very small hands. She does just fine.

GS4 is a very different 5 inch beast. Companies like HTC and so have no regards for the size. Samsung is the only one that uses the thinnest plastics possible to keep the phone small yet durable. Unfortunately, people knock them for it but that is the main reason why women can handle the GS4 easily, because of the "cheap" plastic.

This is a nice looking phone honestly. Price it under $350, and you just may get my money.

Well, looks like I'll have to make a decision. Do I get this on an employee plan and sacrifice customization? Do I buy it unlocked after saving 300 bucks? Do I forgo this and get the new Maxx, after saving 200 bucks (or more), sacrificing customization and likely speed of updates? For anyone's information, I won't be able to root the Maxx, as simply getting caught with a rooted phone by the wrong carrier reps could get me in huge trouble. I've run the risk with my Atrix for the last several months. I wouldn't like to keep doing so. Main reasons to get the Maxx would be for the durability and battery life.
